Yokomo has always released an upgrade kit, when they release more information on the BD-8, I'm sure this will be included in the announcement.

It was a celebrating party for Ronald at Yatabe Japan last weekend.
Many people attended and had a chance to test drive the new car.
Anyone here heard anything?

Does anyone have a parts list going for the conversion kit? It looks like it might be just the center pulley, lay shaft, and motor mount, is that right?
